12 Days of Dresses: The best dress for your shape

 
 
You've done your research to find the perfect holiday dress. And while you’re searching for right color, pattern and size, you might be overlooking the most important detail of all: the right fit to show off your shape. So, how does a girl find the perfect match for her body type? Read on…

    Hourglass: Bust and hips are approximately the same size

    Hourglass hunnies have their pick of pretty much all the fashion out there. Pencil skirts, A-lines dresses, V-necks—anything that draws attention to your itty bitty waistline works wonders.

     

    Avoid: Baggy dresses or tops. They just hide your enviable curves.

    Petite: Smaller frame throughout top and bottom

    Shorter sweeties dazzle in strapless dresses—especially sweetheart necklines and small bodices. To boost your height, stick with a solid color or pattern.

     

    Avoid: Hemlines that go past the knee. Midi dresses do short girls no favors.

    Ruler: Straight frame with little curves

    The lace insets in this dress punctuate the midsection, creating the illusion of curves. Add more shape around your hips with a skater or A-line silhouette.

     

    Avoid: Blocky or billowy dresses with little shape.

    Athletic: Muscular build with broad shoulders

    Yup, there are tricks to create curves for buff babes. First, ruching at the torso and bust give insta-shape. Second, the skinny belt defines your torso. Win-win.

     

    Avoid: Skinny straps or completely strapless tops.

    Pear: Narrow bust (or shoulders), broad hips

    Opt for dresses that give definition to your bust with skirts that skim your hips. And with a belt at the waist, this dress has all the focus in all the right places.

     

    Avoid: Any skirt too tight (e.g. pencil) or too voluminous. (e.g. tulle skirts).

    Apple: Broad bust (or shoulders), narrow hips

    Even out your frame with a floaty or full skirt. For up top, a tank or cap-sleeve fit flatters broad shoulders.

     

    Avoid: Strapless or flashy bodices. Your goal is to draw attention away from your top and to your hips.

    Plus: Curvier

    Ahh, A-line skirts: the magical silhouette. Wear a frock that floats away from your hips while nipping at your waist.

     

    Avoid: Uber tight or shapeless pieces.
